We are excited to announce that Bright Kids has been supporting children in Ukraine for almost two years. Founder and Executive Director Natalie Blinder has received messages of congratulations from our international partners who make regular contributions towards Bright Kids charity. In response, Natalie has shared this special message.
“The prolonged conflict in Ukraine began in about 2014. This has been a very difficult time for my country due to a weakened economy and the conflict. Such situations mean that the most vulnerable members of society, such as children, women and people with disabilities, suffer the most. In Ukraine, there are thousands of children in need. They require regular medical treatments, food, clothes and other necessities. Their needs vary, but they all have one thing in common; their problems originated due to a lack of proper financing. We are immensely grateful to our sponsors for their support. Thanks to the ongoing support of our corporate sponsors and private donors we have realized multiple projects during our first year! Some of our programs have evolved and our focus on health and education has been solidified with the generous support of our volunteers. Bright Kids receives many requests for help and we are doing our best to respond to every one; however, we need your help.”
To get involved and support a child’s health, learning opportunities and socialization, please contact us today and find out more about how you can help. Your help counts.
Natalie Blinder – Founder & Executive Director
Dear friends, welcome to Bright Kids Charity!
After I graduated from university with a degree in economics, I worked in a bank. Later, I chose to move to India where I worked as an interpreter. On my return to Europe, I worked as a personal assistant.
However, I always dreamed of helping others and wanted to work in social welfare.
So I moved to Georgia, where I volunteered to work with children from a disadvantaged background and children living in orphanages.
After gaining valuable experience, I decided it was time to start working in the charitable sector on my own.
I believe that with our combined human effort, we can make a difference in the lives and futures of many children.
Bright Kids aims to offer each child supported by our charity the chance for a brighter future.
If you are interested in assisting us on our journey toward a brighter future and making every life count, please reach out to us.
Nataliia Romanshchak – Director
Nataliia Romanshchak joined Bright Kids as a volunteer in spring 2019. She helped develop the Future Professions project and has provided website translation.
Nataliia has been a committed volunteer, motivated by taking responsibility and committing to tasks.
When Bright Kids had a vacancy for the position of director in September 2019, she was the obvious candidate for the job.
Her valuable input and dedication to our charity mean that we are excited about developing new projects and furthering the work that Bright Kids does.
If you would like to Bright Kids as a volunteer, or if you want to donate clothing, shoes or other necessities, or if you want help with transportation, please contact Nataliia.
Our Volunteers: an essential team and the power of our foundation.
Our volunteers are generous and they are confident that what they do counts.
We have a volunteer team of more than 120 people since November 2018, and more people are signing up every day.
We are grateful that so many people want to support the work of Bright Kids Charity, making us able to reach more children and offer excellent services.
Our volunteers are the people who work hard to turn our ideas into a reality, and without their dedication and compassion, many children would face a far-less inspiring future.
We would like to introduce you to some of our dedicated volunteer team.
Hello! My name is Irina, I work as an accountant. In 2014 I started visiting old people’s houses to help those who don’t have anybody to support them.
Charitable (voluntary) activities teach us to see the world and things happening around us differently, teach us to appreciate what we have and value every day, and, most importantly, to be happy with little things. We should always remember that there are those among us who need help and care, and not to turn your back on someone.
I think that by participating in social projects, I make this world around us a bit better, and also realize that by doing good, you become a better person yourself. That is why I have joined the Bright Kids team!
In August 2020, Lidiia Buliak joined our team as our Project Coordinator. She is developing our projects, connecting with like-minded people and organizations, sharing our success stories about the children we support and their mothers, as well as spreading the word about how people can get involved with Bright Kids. If you’d like to share a story about your life that could help to inspire others, please contact Lidiia at firstname.lastname@example.org.
